In October, Stuart Harper, Executive Director of the Buffalo City Mission, announced the launch of its’ Annual “One Mission, One Hope” Fall Campaign to raise critical funds necessary to sustain programs and services.
Homelessness is an issue that greatly affects our region. According to the Homeless Alliance of Western New York, 50% of the homeless population in Buffalo is experiencing homelessness for the first time.
Today, however, there was good news. To the joy of the Mission friends and family, Harper revealed that the Buffalo City Mission “One Mission, One Hope” campaign topped its goal of $1.9 million by actually bringing in $2.12 million. The Fall Fundraising Campaign ran from October through the end of December. During this time, the Mission needs to raise approximately 35% of its’ annual operating budget.
